Costa Mesa Nabs MODERN SALON Top Honors for Technology

As an education-focused company, we work every day to provide the best and highest quality education for each student that walks through the doors of our academies. It’s our driving force and the main focus within our academies, so when we get noticed for our educational merit, it’s an added bonus and an honor we are extremely humbled to accept. On that note, we are so proud to announce that the TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy has been recognized by MODERN SALON as a 2016 Excellence in Education Top Honoree!

“School pride and powerful results were very evident this year,” said MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove of the many academy entries received for this year’s program. “ We are so impressed with the variety of top schools in the U.S. that entered MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education 2016 program. We have chosen a select few that we believe show leadership and best practices that other schools can use to learn and grow.”

The Top Honorees were awarded on Saturday, November 5 at the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) Annual Convention in Orlando, FL. Among the many high honors presented to an array of deserving schools at this year’s program, the Costa Mesa TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy was named the Top Honoree for Technology in a multi-unit school.

MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education recognition program was developed through a collaboration with the AACS to help the professional beauty school community come together to share and celebrate exceptional salon education experiences and industry career development across the United States. The purpose of this program is to ensure that more exceptional schools get the recognition they deserve for their achievements and efforts throughout the year.

The Costa Mesa academy was also chosen as a finalist for the School Culture and Facilities categories. Our Orange County campus was not the only TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy to garner recognition from MODERN SALON; the TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy franchise location in Albuquerque, NM was also named a finalist in the Community Involvement and School Culture categories.

“On behalf of the entire professional beauty industry, we express gratitude that there are so many professional cosmetology schools continuing to do amazing and valuable work to shape the future of beauty,” said MODERN SALON publisher Steve Reiss.

We love that MODERN SALON has made recognizing standout education a priority and that they celebrate all hard working beauty schools with the Excellence in Education program. We are so proud to be involved with an event and organization that sheds such a bright light on education and regarded so highly to be named a Top Honoree. Congratulations to Costa Mesa on the win! Way to represent the TONI&GUY family and our dedication to education!
